Standing on a Beach - The Singles, is a singles compilation album, marking a decade since the band's start in 1976. The album's title is taken from the opening lyrics of the Cure's debut single, "Killing an Arab". The man featured on the album cover is not a member of the Cure’s entourage, or even connected to he band. He was chosen because his appearance fits the aesthetic of the album they were looking for. His name is John Button, and was a retired fisherman.
Ultimately, Standing on a Beach became the group’s highest-charting album at the time, peaking at No. 4 in the . and No. 48 in America and ultimately selling two million copies on our shores. Less successful but just as intriguing for collectors was one single released to promote the set: a remix of 1979’s Boys Don’t Cry, featuring a new vocal track from Robert Smith.
